I AM AMAZED.

Day # 81: Of my 100 Days Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

After I committed to take this 100 Days Challenge of Counting It All Joy, I wanted to put my foot in my mouth and leave it there! For within that period of time it seemed that I had more reasons to cry than I did to rejoice! However, I am now 3/4 of the way in fulfilling my challenge. But as I look back over my life, I am amazed at how God took a broken girl from a remote land,  groomed her and  gave her an identity and a purpose. He has given me His love without reserved and He has blessed me with gifts that I have not earned. I am amazed by His willingness to lay down His life for fallen humanity. I am amazed that we can enjoy the life and breath that He gives and still deny His existence! I am even more amazed that He still shows His love and mercy to those who openly blaspheme His name and deny His existence. 

During this season of LENT, Romans 5: 7-8 (NLT) is a sober reminder of Jesus Life, Suffering, Death, Burial, and Resurrection. “Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” (Romans 5:7-8 NLT).  The only  reasonable response from this grateful heart and Count It All Joy Inspirational Company during LENT is thank you Lord for your sacrifice!

  ~From The Cross~

From the Cross,
We can experience Pentecost.

For it brought Hope for the wounded,

And Salvation for the lost.

From the Cross,

We have total Victory,

Because Jesus shed His blood;

For you and me!
